Marjan Simçiç - Pinot Grigio "Classic" 2016

€15.99 €15.50

  • Wine description

    Golden yellow with copper tinges. The colour indicates the method of production, which in the right way highlights the intensity and complexity of the aroma (nice flower aromas developing in fruity and spicy notes), full body (the soft, mature and fruity initial taste is substituted by the note of apricots and melons), alcoholic richness with balanced acids, and variety characteristics (at the end, slightly bitter).

    With food 

    Due to its complex body we recommend pairing it with a wide range of dishes – from cold starters to spring-summer pasta. It is excellent with sea food dishes, and not too spicy Asian, Thai and modern Japanese cuisine. 


    The maturation of a classical Pinot Grigio may develop fantastically up to ten years.
